Allow me to introduce you to Van Bellman, soon to be your favorite new band. Van Bellman is the new music project of Brooklyn-based musician Zac Taylor who is best known for playing guitar in American Authors. His new project “is an eclectic mix of bluesy rock and indie pop, Van Bellman’s music was written with purpose.”
He has just released his debut track I Hate To See You This Way and it is one bad ass track. More about the song,
The theme of “I Hate To See You This Way” focuses on the pain of watching someone you love go down a dark road, witnessing them self-destruct. Anyone can relate to this heartbreaking and helpless feeling, whether they have played the role of the nurse or the patient. “It means a lot to me as both a lyrical and sonic story,” said Taylor, who also produced the track at the legendary Mission Sound Studios in Brooklyn through some serious vintage equipment. With influences from Kurt Cobain to Jeff Buckley, you can feel the accusatory growl of the chorus, and get pulled into the sensitive moments in between the roars. Textured with modern elements and pop flourishes, the track is ultimately a rock’n’roll song which is meant to be listened to loud.
I know one thing, it is quite addictive and will have you dripping in bluesy rock. Begging for more! Take a listen to the new song here:
